Fulham have been fined £7,500 by the Football Association for the actions of their players in the ill-tempered match against West Brom in September.

The club, who have been warned about their future conduct, were accused of “failing to ensure players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion”.

Andy Cole and Pape Bouba Diop were both sent off after violent incidents.

Manager Chris Coleman was also fined £500 for his criticism of referee Mark Halsey after the match against Arsenal.

In the match against West Brom, Diop was dismissed after appearing to strike West Brom defender Darren Purse during a penalty box tussle.

And Cole received the same punishment for his part in a mass brawl that erupted after West Brom’s Neil Cement was sent off for his second yellow card.

Both players received club fines for their actions, while Cole is serving a four-match ban after being charged with abusing a match official.

In the second incident, Coleman was angered by Halsey’s decision to change his mind in the wake of Arsenal protests, after originally awarding Fulham a penalty against the Gunners.
